Default Shadow cries

when I'm at work... I went to work yesterday, Shadow was in his crate with food, water and toys... Didn't mess in the crate at all, but I know he cried, because today one of my parrots is doing the most pitiful cries of a puppy and a bit of barking...

Shadow never cries at night and sleep all the way through..

I called in sick for today, because I couldn't bear leaving him again.... Tomorrow, I'll be working during the night, so he should be OK...

How do you manage young puppy, while working full time? I have called daycare, but he has to be fully vaccinated + 10 days, before they'll take him...

Is there any chance of getting back in the middle of the day, or finding someone who can call in for an hour or two during the day, until he is ready for daycare? I would also set up a bigger area for him - either a puppy proofed room or a pen - if you are leaving him for more than an hour or two.

Oh dear, it's hard enough to listen to puppy crying, but to hear a parrot repeat it, wow! fjm gave you good advice. I would also suggest leaving a radio or TV on playing softly for the pup, if you don't already. My mpoo cried some when left in his crate as a pup too, even though he came from the breeder having been crated. Near broke my heart when I used to walk around the outside of the house and hear him. It took about two weeks for him to settle down. I hope maybe you can find a dogwalker to come by mid-day if you're unable to get home. I am still shaking my head just thinking about the parrot squealing on Shadow by repeating his cries--amazing!

Default Shadow cries

For several weeks (and several more after too!!) every lunch time I went home to check on Harry. It made a big difference. The security guard still said he would bark when I'm at work so the lunchtime visits were essential. If this is not possible consider a dog sitter. Harry went to daycare once a week after week 12 thereabouts. He had to have two vaccine before they take him plus recommend kennel cough vaccine. It worked wonders as he loves playing with other dogs and happy being handled by humans. Would come home happy and exhausted.

I am working with intellectually disabled people, who require 24/7 supervision and care... I only get a break, when it's quiet, but obviously can't go anywhere...

I have now ordered a foldable exercise pen, and I'll be taken that as well as Shadow with me to work. The men I work with love animals, and hopefully I won't be in too much trouble... lol

There is a wealth of information about how much having a dog around people who have a disabilty improves their quality of life... I work with the Delta Society as a Pet Partner, and we go to nursing homes and so forth... I think it is wonderful idea to take him to work, and will be great for all involved! Please keep us posted to let us know how it is working out, and how much the gentlemen love him (I know they will)

I hope it works out for you to take your pup to work with you (wish I could do that!) But Shadow will have to learn to be alone sometimes too. I know it's really hard to leave when they are crying or barking, but in a few minutes time he'll quiet down. You could leave the radio on for some company (I leave on talk radio for Lily). So even if you can bring him to work with you, I'd still suggest leaving him for short periods of time and gradually lengthening the time he spends alone so he does get used to it.

That is a great idea! Wonderful for the people you work with and also the puppy. I have an agency that supports people with disabilities and they just love the poodles and the poodles really enjoy them also. Sounds like a win win all the way around!

Shadow will learn to be alone, but he's only 3 months old... He managed my being away for my 8-hour workday... He didn't cry when I left, and he didn't cry when I came home... but he must have cried some time during the day for Max (alexandrine) to copy it...

When he gets older, he'll have the run of the house, while I'm at work..

I have also contacted a pet sitter to come in, when I'm on 12 hour shifts as an alternative.

Pretty much sounds like you got it figured out! Sounds good for everyone.....A really great way to socialize him too! Good luck and keep us up on your progress!
